Announcement   Hello, my name is Ed van der Hoek and my shop is called edart. I thought that would be a nice name when spelled backwards too. I, Ed, am the producer of this stuff and though I always tend to start with positive messages I will make an exception in this case. It is sickening to see that some companies have been stealing my designs and thought it to be a good idea to put my designs on all kinds of objects. Mainly on pillow-covers named dogfun, cute dogs and cars or throw pillows or whatever they call it cushion covers. My works can be recognized by the small logo or signature marked Ed06, Ed07, Ed08, Ed09, Ed10, Ed11, Ed12, Ed13, Ed14, Ed15 ehhh ... and so on. These numbers represent the years the works were made. And many people say that my style can be recognized from miles away.

So to all people that are sitting on my work or lay their heads at rest on or besides a cosy pillow with my dogs and cars on it ..... Enjoy that but bear in mind this is stolen stuff. There never has been given permission to do so. Okay this is clear now I hope.

But hey, let's move on to the fun part of being an artist. One thing is for sure. I like dogs and many other animals. Yes ... okay ... cats too. And cars. Classic cars from the times you could tell if it was a Volkswagen, Mercedes or a Citroen or whatever car you could recognize when you were a small kid in the back of your dads car. Along side our Dalmatian dog. Try to picture that.

The last months I decided to start making small watercolors. The sheer tempo of my inspiration versus the time to realize a work do match this way of painting. I love to make what comes to mind and act to it and these small watercolors take out the best in me.

Making paintings and hoping to raise a smile.

On Etsy I sell greeting cards and prints, whether on wood or not, all based on my original paintings and photographs. And I think it is all quite affordable.

You can buy my prints in 4 different sizes:

- 14x14 cm / 5.5x5.5 “
- 21x21 cm / 8.3x8.3 “
- 27x27 cm / 10.6x10.6 “
- 38x38 cm / 15x15 “

And as said check out my watercolors !
These are mounted on plywood. And I think this is a very nice way to expose these works.

It may also be nice to know that the print of 27x27 cm / 10.6x10.6 “ perfectly fits in a frame you can buy at Ikea, our swedish friends. The matte that comes along with the Ribba Frames do the trick. So if you want a good and proper affordable piece of good art I recommend this size.

A print on wood is available in the size 14x14 cm / 5.5x5.5 “. For a print on wood, you do not need a frame at all since the print is glued on a wooden panel which has a suspension on the back. You only need a nail and hammer or screw and screwdriver to suspend this little work of art.

Beside of the items I sell on Etsy, I can also help you with a customized order. If you want information about a customized order, please contact me. You can contact me through my homepage on Etsy by pushing the button ‘Request Custom Order’.

Hope to hear from you soon!

I absolutely love these these cards! I'm from the USA and was worried about ordering from the Netherlands; but everything went smoothly and Ed was great! Will definitely order more!

About

A shop for people who like animals and classic cars.

I live and work in The Netherlands. I started this shop in 2009, some day in april, to find out if my work would be appreciated overseas as well. So here I am with my growing and growing number of cards and prints.

The base for these cards are my original paintings that mostly have been made on a 39x39 inch canvas.

The video shown is about the way I bake my work. Certainly not as fast as this 20 seconds. But you will get the idea.

    Good quality cards. Produced on a state of the art printing machine. Printing instead of offset techniques provides me flexibility. Colors, contrast and brightness can be adjusted more easily.
